I am a licensed school teacher in the state of Texas Kinder, Pre-K through Eight Grade, with Certification for basic high school math, English Language Skills, Social Studies, and History.  I have a master's in Curriculum and Ed.S in Educational Technology. I have lived and worked as a teacher in Virginia, Louisiana, Texas, Minnesota, and Colorado.  In each state, I was a licensed/certified elementary/middle school teacher. In addition to working with elementary, and middle school teacher, and ninth & tenth grade, I have worked for several years as a special education teacher and online ESL and private teacher. In public schools, I specialized as a teacher by working with students who had severe physical, mental, and cognitive issues. Also, I worked with students who had severe Autism and who were also diagnosed with High Functional Asperger’s.  Currently, I work online as an English Language teacher, writer, and teacher trainer. As a middle school teacher, I taught English Language skills (writing, grammar, and reading) and Social Studies. In addition, I taught Basic Math skills, English Language, Social Studies and My two favorite historical figures are Abraham Lincoln and Malcolm X because each person never allowed failure to stop them from their eventual success as a person.  My passion is to work with students in small groups and individuals who require scaffolding instruction to be successful. In addition, I love to teach a variety of courses and have a variety of interests that I want to share with my students.  I love to teach project-based courses that incorporate reading, writing, math, and technology skills in relation to history and cultural awareness.  
I love learning! I am in graduate school and attend many workshops.  I have completed my Educational Specialist degree in Educational technology, my Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction, my Bachelor of Arts in Specials Education, and my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.  I also have an Associate degree in Early Childhood and a TESOL in English as a Second Language.  I attend many workshops and have received my certifications as a Language teacher (Phonics, English as a Second Language, Language-based Disabilities).
In addition to working for Outschool, I have a business “Michelle’s Innovations” and provide services as an

As a public school teacher, I received training in multi subjects, including science, writing, reading, math, and geography.  As a result, I also taught children from PreK- to 8th grade in the above subjects.  My certifications have included these areas, as well as a resource, teaching, and ESL.  My favorite subjects have always been science, reading, writing, and geography, so I have been fortunate in that I have been able to teach these subjects to students who are extremely interested in these areas. As an elementary teacher, I taught multiple subjects including science.  I taught life cycles many times during my time as a Preschool,  3rd to 6th-grade teacher.  In addition, was a Social Studies and History teacher for grades 6-8 and 9-10 grade.

My husband is a retired Navy person and we have lived in many different parts of the United States of America. In addition, my own family has lived in Europe where my Dad worked as a teacher.  I love to share and believe that we are a global community that needs to live together.
The class curriculum meets the writing standards for upper elementary and middle school students, with the aim of enabling students to read and write at a second-grade level.
a college-ruled notebook especially for this class, writing utensil(s), colored pencils, or crayons. No Markers.
The materials will be presented during a 55-minute class period once a week. Each lesson will be screen shared via a power point during the class. On occasion, I will use videos from YouTube which will also be screen shared with the students. The students do not need to have their own google docs account or YouTube subscription as I will give them a private link to their own google Docs.  In addition, I will screen-share powerpoints lesson and videos with the class
I will screen share the materials that the students need to read because the primary goal is that they write the sentences using their own voice. We will go over how to correctly use grammar, and punctuation in sentences, but the students will write what they want to use in their graphic organizers. 
I will attach the graphic organizers in the resource sections, and they will need to be downloaded prior to class. In addition, the students will need a college-ruled spiral notebook which will be turned into an interactive notebook. The notebook will serve as a way to keep records of the rules  (grammar and sentences to apply to the next level of sentence construction as they learn them throughout the class. The first page of the notebook will be set up as a table of contents so that the students can easily locate the information in their notebooks.
